There are a few things that we all think are experts in and that there is probably no nobody who knows these facts better than we do. But I’m kind of here to break the ice and tell you that all that is popular, might not always be true. Talking specifically about floor tiles and how we think an expert’s help is going to do no good. Well, you might just be wrong. As you read this article I will try to debunk some of the most famous misconceptions about floor tiling and everything that might be hiding in the ‘always correct’ folder inside our brains.
Firstly, everything that is costlier is better. This mantra is not always correct. We most often think that the more money we spend on a product, the better it will be, but as far as tiles are concerned, many ceramic tiles are less pricy and might be better suited for your needs. There are just so many options that we have concerning floor tiles that it is very easy to get confused. Do your research and know what suits your home best.
More often people are under the misconception that the natural tiles made of limestone, mica and graphite are the best option under all circumstances which is in fact wrong. Naturals have their advantages and disadvantages as well and the requirements are actually determined depending upon the space use and size and many other parameters can also be considered.
People often also believe that shinier tiles are better as they get cleaned easily. But this is also not quite correct. All tiles have almost the same technique of getting cleaned and there is almost no difference as far as cleaning is concerned.
Debunk all the old ideas you have and do read a lot and research and find out what you want. Categorise your choices and then shortlist them according to situations and you are sure to make a correct decision.
